About this Textbook

There have been significant advances in the diagnosis and management of eye disease since the last edition of Common Eye Diseases and their Management was published. The specialty has developed more subspecialties, and the referring doctor has to have a good knowledge of these in order to make appropriate referrals. An increased emphasis on screening has made it necessary for the primary care doctor to have a basic knowledge of eye diseases. This applies particularly to glaucoma and diabetic eye disease. The management of eye conditions in the elderly is also an important and increasing primary care problem.

It has been the intention to keep explanations as simple and non-technical as possible without losing scientific accuracy and more detailed accounts should be sought in the larger textbooks.

The book is essential for medical students and general practitioners as well as optometrists and nurses. It addresses problems and deals with the science of Ophthalmology at a basic level.

Reviews

From the reviews of the third edition:

"The text is structured to provide a brief introduction to the basic science of the eye … . It provides an excellent introduction to clinical ophthalmology, with clear and simple explanations … . There are 146 figure drawings and numerous clinical photographs throughout which illustrate and illuminate the text well, providing high quality visual reference material. This text makes an excellent learning aid for anyone needing a basic introduction to clinical ophthalmology. … It is an invaluable basic and preliminary learning resource for clinical ophthalmology." (Sumona Chaudhury, Eye News, April/May, 2007)

"The book is well-written using a colloquial and clear style that makes the reader feel at ease with the text. … The text is supported by many high-quality colour clinical photographs and by an important number of excellent diagrams, drawings and original cartoons … . the authors succeed in their goal and offer us a comprehensive and useful insight into the field of general ophthalmology. Thus, we recommend this book to anyone who is starting to deal with eye problems." (José Javier Garcia-Medina and Manuel Garcia-Medina, Graefe’s Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, Vol. 245, 2007)
